    Thought this could give us some ideas on what to make and how to stretch things further.

    B - coffee
    L - toasted red onion and chive bagel with cheese and chicken slices, bag of cheese and onion crisps
    D - will be leftover shredded gammon and chicken, leftover garlic and parmesan mash, carrots and peas, stuffing, yorkshire pudding and gravy

    Thomas
    B - bowl of shreddies
    L - billy bear sandwich (crusts cut off which were then fed to the dog), grapes, fridge raiders, cheese string
    D - will be chicken dippers and chips because he is a fussy sod.
    Snacks - so far a mini cake bar and a babybel

    I realise my sons diet is not high in fruit and veg - he is special needs and has quite a rigid diet. He won't eat anything that's not his safe foods.

    This may seem really obvious but I've discovered that roasting or slow cooking meat and then shredding it instead of slicing it makes it go further.

    Dinner will be: meatballs from the freezer stash with pasta for the boys, cauliflower cheese for me.
